IAPD Statement on Violence in the Middle East
The International Association of Paediatric Dentistry (IAPD) is committed to improve oral health of children worldwide. In doing so we advocate for holistic well-being of children and their caregivers, irrespective of any political or racial considerations. We stand against all acts of violence placing innocent populations in danger. IAPD is against the suffering of uninvolved, innocent citizens in every war situation.
IAPD 2025: What to Expect
The 30th IAPD Congress theme, “Refresh, Refocus, Renew” emphasises the transformative power of paediatric dentistry in improving individuals’ quality of life and promoting holistic healthcare.
The golden thread through this congress theme and slogan is how we as paediatric dentists should refresh, refocus and renew our approach to providing patient-centred, holistic oral health care. This theme also links to focused research in Oral Health-Related Quality of Life (OHRQoL) which is a multidimensional construct that includes a subjective evaluation of the individual’s oral health, functional well-being, emotional well-being, expectations and satisfaction with care and sense of self.
The 3-day scientific programme will be comprehensive, catering for all special interests pertaining to paediatric dentistry!

Fluoride has been a subject of extensive research, inquiry, and innovation. Its role in dental health is nothing short of remarkable, and understanding its optimal usage is key to building a resilient barrier against one of the most common oral health issues – dental caries.
We present you with the IAPD Consensus Document on the usage of fluoride in the fight against caries.
This is a free resource developed by the IAPD Science Committee, available in English, French, Spanish and Italian!
